One of the most common things I always get asked is which primers are best for oily skin. Everyone wants a flawless finish however for those with oily skin it can be tricky to maintain as the day goes on.
A glowing, ultra-dewy complexion is currently trending with everyone from runway models to bloggers emulating the look of soft, glowing skin. The summer season is coming to an end yet the desire to create a face that’s luminous and healthy-looking with a golden shine is still at an all time high. The best way to get that natural, youthful look is really simple and easily achievable in just a few steps.
I had such a lovely morning talking brows and freckles with Rochelle Humes on the Lorraine show this week, using some of my favourite brow products including Wunderbrow Eyebrow Gel, Illamasqua Brow Build, Bobbi Brown Eyebrow Pencil, Benefit Volumizing Eyebrow Gel and the brand new freckle stencil from Bronzie!

It’s coming to that time of year where college and sixth form are coming to an end and it’s time to choose which career path you want to take. I have always thought that having to decide exactly what you want to do for the rest of your life at 18 is such a daunting and pressurising task. Nowadays, with university fees being SO expensive, the pressure to choose the right path is more intense than ever, but how is anyone so young, with little or no work experience, meant to know what they want to do for the rest of their life?
It’s literally festival mania at the moment and everyone wants tips and tricks for the fun summer days. What could be more perfect than an excuse to see all my CLMA lot?

Oh yes, the dreaded time stealer of social media is included too nowadays.
One of the questions I always get asked is which foundation is best for oily skin. Finding the best foundation for your skin type is no easy task and with so many options out there it’s hard to pick one that is perfectly suited to your skin.
